A HOST of Carlton’s AFLW players will continue in the Navy Blue in 2024, with co-vice captains Mimi Hill and Jess Dal Pos alongside Harriet Cordner and Darcy Vescio committing to Carlton.   

Hill, named in Carlton’s best in over half the games of the season, showcased her reliable and consistent game throughout the season, earning her third place in the Club’s Best and Fairest award.  

At just 21 years of age, Hill featured as the stand-in sole captain in Round 9 and 10, helping guide the team.  


Known for her versatility and on-field leadership, Dal Pos has a team-first attitude and is able to elevate the members of her side and create ways they can impact the game.   

Named as the co-vice captain for the second consecutive year, Dal Pos is also a former All Australian. 

An inaugural Blue, Vescio has been a vital member of the side since arriving in 2017. A reliable source in the forward line, Vescio was the first Carlton player to reach the 50-game milestone and is a two-time AFLW leading goalkicker.  



Joining the Blues in 2023, Cordner has injected a boost of leadership and consistency into the backline with her ability to read the play and impact aerially.  

In a surprising move for some, Cordner pushed up forward throughout the season and has shown her ability to be versatile across the field.   


Picked up by Carlton as injury replacement players for 2023, Gen Lawson-Tavan and Ciara Fitzgerald will remain in the Navy Blue next season after being offered one-year contracts.   

Joining their fellow teammates playing in 2024 at Carlton are Marianna Anthony, Lulu Beatty, Dayna Finn, Lily Goss, Maddy Guerin, Taylor Ortlepp and Tahlia Read.  

Head of AFLW Ash Naulty said it is evident how connected the playing groups are with each other.   

“The playing group want to play together, they are continually learning and developing not only individually but as a team as well.  

“We have a good mix of both emerging and established players on our list, which puts us in a strong position heading into next season.  

“We are so glad to be in a position where we can offer Ciara and Gen contracts for next season. They both came in with an eagerness to develop and grow alongside the rest of the team and quickly earned the respect of everyone involved in the program.  

“Each player has shown their trust in the program we are building here at the Blues and we can't wait to welcome them back to IKON Park next pre-season.”
